Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan
One of the most surprising cigars to come out of Cuba, the hand-rolled Hoyo de Monterry Le Hoyo de San Juan is a beasty Geniales giving a delightfully light-bodied and aromatic snoke. The master blenders have created a subtle and wonderfully aromatic smoke that belies the cigar’s young age.
Hoyo de Monterrey Le Hoyo de San Juan Overview
Released at the 2014 Habanos Festival, the Le Hoyo de San Juan comes in a Geniales format with a mighty 54 ring gauge and a 5.9” length. It has an immensely satisfying weight and feel. Some may consider the big size pretentious or over the top.
Hand-rolled from tobacco sourced solely from the San Juan y Martínez region where the brand originated, this outstanding cigar offers a modern twist on the original Hoyo de Monterrey recipe. It provides smokers with a light-to-medium flavor profile rather than the brand’s standard medium-bodied fare.
Smoking a Hoyo de Monterrey le Hoyo de San Juan
The Hoyo de Monterrey le Hoyo de San Juan has almost perfect construction with a semi-matte wrapper between Colorado Claro and Colorado, which smells of dry hay, wood shavings, and dried fruit at the foot.
Well-packed without any soft spots, the Le Hoyo de San Juan offers excellent resistance to the draw. The burn can become slightly uneven in places, but quickly corrects without any assistance.
The first third is light and floral, with a base note of wood and a hint of sweet spices such as cloves and cinnamon. The spice notes are joined by the aroma of sun-ripened stone fruits and roasted nuts going into the second third. As with most Cubans, the intensity peaks towards the final third with rich caramel and chocolate, creating a lushly layered flavor that lingers long after you are done.
The Le Hoyo de San Juan has a surprising complexity considering its young age and should be considered in the same bracket as special edition cigars. It’s better value if you’re prepared to age most of the box for two years or more.
Hoyo de Monterrey le Hoyo de San Juan Experience
The Hoyo de Monterrey le Hoyo de San Juan is designed to be aged and is best enjoyed by someone who can appreciate delicately layered flavors. Novice cigar smokers will find it to be a challenge. Smoke one or two now and keep the rest of the box for later.
Among all the great Cuban Cigars,LE HOYO DE SAN HUAN fits me best. Mild & somewhat feminine draw is not burden on my stomach and body. The smell of dirt and leather makes me nostalgic. I would like to thanks Carolina for her help in purchasing there nice cigars!
Not a bad cigar . Pretty good
Amazing cigar amazing quality and service thank you so much
Cigar arrived great. Awful cigar. Glad I ordered one before a box perhaps just young.
As usual, the sealed box arrived in a timely fashion. After a few days of restoration in my humidor, I began enjoying these fine cigars.
A good smoke for the price
Amazing cigar. Very good customer service. I got my cigars in very good condition
This cigar is not bad at all
Amazing cigars and very professional customer service
Terrific cigar. Smooth, mellow and mild. I will buy more.
Not one of the best known brands. Very smooth, almost buttery flavor. Now one of my top four or five favorite Cubans
Here I am, on a rare Monday off, sitting back smoking this fine cigar. What can I say about it? It’s Cuban, it smokes perfect, it taste great. What more do you need to know? I’ll tell you. Service!! A recent care package wound up in Chicago, lost forever. Luxury Cubans was in constant contact with me and replaced the order. I trust Luxury Cubans to deliver my cigars all the time every time.
love this cigar so so much I. I now smoke one of these every 2 days
I have bought this four times. Always satisfying me.
New Customer. Received my mixed package of Hoyo de Monterey cigars in a timely fashion and in perfect condition. Le Hoyo de San Juan is , without any doubt, one of Cuba’s best cigar. Perfect construction and perfect burn. It is woody with earthy and flowery tones. Medium strenght and creamy. A must try. Will soon order more.
This Hoyo is an awesome example of how the tobacco culture in Cuba nails it. Such pleasure to experience the attention to detail in blending and construction from this producer. And as an aside, the ease of ordering as well as the condition of the product at delivery is a testament to the care given by Luxury Cubans
Great, Great cigar. Has a smooth woody profile that I really enjoy. It stays smooth the whole way through. I tend to like the Cohibas and with these sticks I have found a new favorite. Thanks again Luxury Cubans
Awesome cigar. Box and cigars arrived in perfect condition. Have not smoked these. My older Le Hoyo De San Juan’s have a great flavor profile. Woody, earthy with sweet undertones. Very good burn. Great Cuban cigar for sure.
Great cigar. I won’t get into a review but I would like to see more reviews on the cigars on this site. Now I can tell you one thing…….wether your shipment comes packed with a humidifier pac or not, LET THEM SIT IN YOUR HUMIDOR FOR AT LEAST 30-60 DAYS BEFORE LIGHTING ONE UP. When you recieve your order…..sure…..you’re excited, so light one up. Then put them away for 30-60 days and let them get acclimated in your humidor. I GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A BETTER EXPERIENCE WITH FLAVOR AND BURN IF YOUR HUMIDOR IS SET TO THE CORRECT RH AND TEMP. The 70/70 is a myth. Best to keep CC between 60-63 rh and temps around 70-73 F. ie….if your temp is 72 f in your humidor …..keep you rh about 62
Looks to be in great condition. Waiting for warmer weather to give this one a go. Very excited to try it
Will be ordering again soon. Fast shipping and solid cigars!
Delivery was quick and effortless. The cigars were excellent. It had been a long time since I had a fantastically delicious cigar like this one. I will be re ordering soon
My favorite Cigar. Love it so much.
